    There are no test championship points up for grabs, and it has been rumored that the likes of Bairstow, Root, Stokes, and Buttler may be given a rest. I don't think England is in any fit shape or form to be resting players on a NZ tour without begging for a thrashing.

    https://www.nzherald.co.nz/sport/new...ectid=12254111

    I'd like Ferg to get a go in one of the tests, before Australia. And I'd like to see a fit Will Young given a chance in the second test if Raval is still struggling.

    The scheduling of all these day t20 games on weekdays seems damn stupid and disappointing to me. I get we need to share cricket around our grounds, but surely its about getting most access to view the games for the country as possible?

    2 of these games are going to inevitably rate so poorly - I really question what NZC is thinking. The whole point of T20 was a television package for the viewer where the whole game could more or less be viewed in prime time. But Wellington and Auckland are both given weekend day games? Why?

    Would't it have made sense for them to have the mid week night games, and the ovals the day weekend games? Is NZC really more concerned about ticket sales and not tv audiences? T20 cricket is meant to be played at night. With both teams under lights. Its the only format where this is possible.

    Thinking ahead of the summer, I just compared the NZ batting to India and Aus and Eng. Of course Smith is way out in the lead. Then a thing of beauty happens. Absolute sheer joy. This is almost enough to bring a tear to the eye to anyone who has supported NZ for the past 30 odd years.

    Raval is our only batting passenger of late. And Southee has been out performing the likes of Warner, Bairstow, Rahul, Cook, and even S Curran. Taylor is well under career, but he has never been that fond of Asia, and there has been 5 tests there in his 11 tests. So his low output makes sense. Not noticed by intl media at all, but de Grandhomme and Watling are performing quite impressively.

    I'm not sure if Raval will see the summer through with Young around. I really think Young after smashing the Aussies in the WC warmups should be strongly considered for the Aus leg when fit unless Raval tons up in a big way vs England.

    What is really impressive for me is Southee's contributions. I only in particularly noticed in SL, in the test, and then the t20 warm up match (which cricinfo incorrectly credit to Kuggelieijn, but I watched the game - it was def Southee), that he is finally batting with the talent everyone thought he had from debut, but with clever shot selection too. Then he continued it in the 3rd t20i.

    I'm not by any means suggesting he is an allrounder, nor my ideal choice to bat at 8, but I wouldn't be messing around with a spinner this summer bar SCG test unless the spinning side of Hamilton block is used. But a tail of 7 CdG 8 Southee 9 Wagner 10 Fergo 11 Boult is not so ugly if Southee keeps up his good work.

    So England will be sending its full strength test team now afterall. But they're resting the multiformat players from the t20, so the likes of Buttler, Archer, Stokes, possibly Root and Bairstow as well. Etc.

    How can you not pick Phillips with the CPL form he's been in over the last two months? 37 average at 145 SR.

    Seifert averaged 12 at 88 SR in the Sri Lanka tour last month...

    Loving the non selection of Williamson

    Not liking the selection of Jimmy. He likes a fair few sighters does Jimmy as in about 10-15 balls before he will he get going. Don't have that luxury in T20.

    Just noticed that Tom Bruce has been dumped after scoring a 50 to win a match in his last series.

    Both should be in the team. Seifert was a child prodigy in cricket. And most of those come good eventually.

    Bruce and Williamson are injured Wrighty. Neither has been dropped.

    I never heard about Seifert being a child cricket prodigy, as far as I knew, he played hockey as well.

    This is last chance saloon for Seifert, before Philips has earnt a shot for me. Philips is making runs in all formats for all teams he is playing for lately. His form fell away after he performed against SA, but I think he more than deserves a shot at this.

    The batting still looks light at first blush, but we are allrounder heavy to balance it out, and CdG and Neesh are not really playing for their bowling in this format. Seriously 8 bowling options there, NZC has clearly decided that is our weakness. Seriously - we can pick any number of teams with batting to 9 with only Sodhi and Ferg/Boult the muppets cos Southee was batting like gold in SL. He seriously was.

    1 Munro 2 Gupp 3 Seifert 4 CdG 5 Taylor 6 Neesh 7 Mitchell 8 Kugg/Sodhi 9 Santner 10 Ferg/Boult 11 Southee C 12 Tickner

    I notice Rance has been dropped and noone has said a word. Lets see if the media leave KuggleJuggle alone this time.

    I wouldnt be surprised if England beat us, but its t20, and we beat India last year with some great fighting spirit - so who knows.

    I wanna see more Kuggs - I really think he is learning fast at t20. But he needs more time with coaches like Bond (right now) and Flemming (IPL). He is learning variations and is bowling as fast as ever.

    If not a child prodigy then a teen age high school superstar at the very least. He was the BIG FISH of the youth ND catchment area and was the big wicket in the entire Gillette cup in his 7th form year tonning up at will. I think St Peters from Cambridge either won it all with him, or missed out in the final game. He absolutely thrashed school boy attacks to all parts. The problem was he didn't learn to build an inning as the bowling was too babyish for him. Hence he has taken a long time to adjust to FC and List A cricket and has mediocre numbers.

    He was probably mishandled and they should have had him in Hamilton Prems at age 16 onwards instead of rep age group cricket.

    It's nice to see the overall list of England Tour of New Zealand. Moreover, it would be thrilling to see the performance of all the cricket players in the match. I am excited to see the cricket equipment, cricket bats & their playing style & techniques which players are going to use so that I can grab them and use them during the play.
    Seems like you've been hit with a few already, seriously... off with the spam.

    Mitchell setting us up nicely for those dull, accumulative middle overs. Should be up for about 350 by the 50th over.

    EDIT: Of course. As soon as I post that he starts to hit a few.
